Snow days!

Each morning after school makes the decision to close for snow/bad weather, we will then try our best to get enough staff together to open.

If you need care for the day, please call ahead at 360-820-2031 to make sure that we’ll be open and whether we have availability or not. Please also make sure you know when we will close for pick-up, as we may have shorter hours.

These days are $20 for enrolled students and $50 for non-enrolled.

Please send your child with a lunch and snow/outdoor clothing.

COMING THIS FALL: Through the Woods Preschool!

Check out our four (FREE) Preview Days we’re offering, beginning in February!

At Through the Woods Preschool, we believe that children are intrinsically motivated to learn, and that they do so by exploring the world around them. We aim to foster curiosity, to guide rather than compel, and to provide room for possibility and adventure rather than attempt to constrain children’s interests to fit within a certain curriculum. Children ages 3-5 years old will explore, play, discover and learn, while  engaging with nature and the wonderment of Creation and the Creator, in their outdoor classroom nestled in the towering trees of The Firs/Fircreek Woods.

Program Distinctives Include:

  • Nature immersion
  • Small class sizes – personalized learning
  • Fostering sustainable culture
  • Child-driven curriculum
  • Play-based experiential learning

“Whatever shape nature takes, it offers each child an older, larger world separate from parents. Unlike television, nature does not steal time; it amplifies it.” Richard Louv, Last Child in the Woods.

Program Details:

  • Starting:  September 3, 2019
  • Ages:  3-5 years old (must be potty trained)
  • Hours:  8:00 am – 11:30 am (we are taking names of those who would be interested in an extended preschool day, to determine if this is a need in our community)

Days & Rates:

  • 2-Day Option – $195/month
  • 3-Day Option – $280/month
  • 5-Day Option – $525/month

Please note that there is a 2-day/week minimum. You may choose which days you are interested in and we will do our best to accommodate, though class sizes are limited.

The preschool calendar will follow the Bellingham School District Calendar for holidays and school closures.

To Register:
